Hailing from Boston, MA, Ice Nine Kills has been making their way across the nation captivating fans with their high energy performances stacked on top of their “intricate song writing and elaborate story telling,” INK is ready to take over your music library.

Formed in 2006 by vocalist Spencer Charnas and then lead guitarist Jeremy Schwartz, Ice Nine Kills has gone through a couple of genre changes and have shifted into what they call a “Theatricore” genre. This band is well known for their horror inspired lyrics and with three EP’s and four full-length albums under their belt there’s definitely something in their extensive discography to catch your attention. (Or should I say your ears?)

INK’s newest album Every Trick in the Book, made it onto the Billboard Top 200 after it’s release in December of 2015 not long after the band signed to Fearless Records in September of the same year. Every Trick in the Book was written as a tribute to “some of the greatest literature ever written,” lead vocalist Spencer explains that they wanted to expose the younger generation to these stories from the 1600-1970’s and beyond.

Ice Nine Kills will be making their fifth appearances on the Vans Warped Tour this summer so make sure to check them out on the Monster Energy North stage!
